Pop-Up Opera returns this summer with a sparkling new Mozart double bill: Der Schauspieldirektor and Bastien und Bastienne. Sit back and enjoy two delicious one-act comedies in which a pair of actresses battle it out to be the prima donna, and a pair of lovers tease and test their feelings for each other.
Pop-up Opera, under the direction of directed by New British Music Theatre Award nominee Anna Pool, aims to broaden the appeal of opera and to challenge the way it is performed.
These two lively and engaging stories showcase Mozart’s gorgeous music and sense of playfulness, the first written in the last five years of his life and the second when he was just 12 years old.
Sun 1 July, 7:30pm. Herrison Hall, Charlton Down £18
